Publisherâ<80><99>s Weekly has posted the following regarding Chris Jerichoâ<80><99>s upcoming autobiography: Publisher’s Weekly wrote the following about the forthcoming Chris Jericho autobiography, “A Lion’s Tale”: “This funny, insightful and compulsively readable autobiography by professional wrestling superstar Lion Heart Jericho matches fellow wrestler Mick Foley’s bestselling Have a Nice Day! Jericho reached international stardom after joining the media juggernaut World Wrestling Entertainment (formerly WWF) in 1999, but this book neglects his many accomplishments since then, such as his legendary same-night defeat of wrestling powerhouses the Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin to become the WWE’s first undisputed heavyweight champion. Instead, Jericho recounts the fascinating story of his early yearsâ<80>“in effect, a short history of world wrestling trends since 1960â<80>“from his brutal early training in his native Canada through finally being invited to join the WWE. Jericho ignores or glosses over controversial topics like steroid use, preferring to keep things light and cheery. His hilarious and detailed descriptions of his many bouts, especially his 1995 calling card match in Japan before 10,000 fans, will leave readers hoping for a sequel.”

Ron Simmons will be in attendance at the Columbus Clippers vs. Toledo Mud Hens minor league baseball game on August 31st.

The Rock now has a page on MySpace at myspace.com/TheRock. It’s basically a promotional page to hype his upcoming movie, although it also thwarts all the imposters on the website. Rock does check out the page and has posted a message on it. Also, you can win a trip to meet him at the Hollywood premiere of his upcoming movie, The Game Plan, simply by adding him as a friend.

Plans call for the 2007 Diva Search winner to be announced on 10/28 at the Cyber Sunday pay-per-view in Washington, D.C.
